Yes, I’ll admit it, homosexual behavior revolts me. It makes me gag to imagine the sexual encounters they engage in. I can’t help it. The thought of man-on-man-on-man fellatio and anal sex is gross!
Maybe they think heterosexual intercourse is gross too. But, despite what the radical homosexual community would have you believe, my reaction is not because of some religious indoctrination, I received as a child. Nor is it because my parents were opposed to homosexuality. It isn’t even because of anything I learned from my friends or school mates. Despite the current rantings of the homosexual community, it was none of these, because the fact is, I’d never even heard of homosexuals until I was in college in the late 1960s. And by then, I was way beyond being influenced by any of the above.
My reaction has nothing to do with religion, prejudice, training or bias. It is a purely physical, biological and emotional response, very similar to my reaction to the thought of sky-diving or eating brains. I’m sorry, but I just can’t stomach any of them. So, why is it that, unlike the sky-divers and brain merchants, homosexuals want to get into my private life and legally force me to like them. It’s like forcing people who hate heights, to walk a tightrope to prove they aren’t chicken. The whole premise is pointless, inane and an unvarnished attempt to annoy total strangers, who couldn’t care less about homosexuals activities, unless of course, they take it upon themselves to falsely blame the stranger’s Christian faith for their imaginary persecution.
Anyone born after 1972 probably cannot remember a time when there weren’t gays. But for us older folks, and for me in particular, it wasn’t until Rock Hudson died of AIDS in 1985 that I finally learned all of the sexual details surrounding homosexuality. Not only was I grossed-out but I wasn’t alone in my long-standing ignorance of the topic either. Most baby boomers knew very little about homosexuality because it was never acknowledged to exist during our up-bringing, either privately or publicly.
In retrospect, homosexual behavior was a private matter, just as heterosexual behavior was a private matter. Therefore, no one discussed anyone’s sex lives in public. This was true even for a very popular movie star like Rock Hudson. Unless sex was breaking up a marriage or resulted in a death, it was an invisible aspect of people’s lives.
So, I can attest to the fact that, despite the claims by the current batch of radical homosexuals, there was not a wholesale persecution of homosexuals at any point during my lifetime nor, for that matter, in the history of the United States. And, despite the rantings of the anti-Christian intolerant LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) radicals, neither was there a sinister plot concocted by Christians to destroy them. America has always been a vastly Christian country and homosexuality was never a tenet of the faith and, as a result, it was a non-issue, totally irrelevant to people’s daily lives and the practice of their faith.
It was, in fact, the homosexuals themselves (along with their Hollywood supporters) who invented the premise of homosexual persecution by Christians. This is a lie. Unlike the radical homosexuals who believe in hate and intolerance, Christians believes in universal love and tolerance and my life’s experience attests to the validity of both.
The truth is the reverse of what most young people believe. It was the homosexuals, in lock-step with the non-Christian radical, second-wave feminists, who deliberately concocted the lies and false accusations about Christian animosity towards them, not the other way around. And, as a result, it is the homosexuals, not the Christians, who own intolerance. Homosexuals thrive on the lies and false accusations against the Christians because the liberal media love their public antics. And without the trumped-up, good guy/ bad guy controversy, they would sink back into irrelevancy, which most would find more intolerable than death. Only with the help of the lesbian-led, radical feminists, the publicity starved news media and the weak-kneed liberal politicians, have they succeeded in perpetuating this fraud, this excess in religious intolerance!
Looking back, it wasn’t until Rock Hudson’s death that I came to the realization that my gym teacher in high school and my father’s business associate were probably both homosexuals. They were two people I admired and whose company we all enjoyed because they were just great people. Sex was never part of the equation for anyone in our polite society because they were, just as we were, modest people who did not flaunt their sex lives in public.
Back then, homosexuals lived their private lives, just like everybody else did, privately. In my entire life, there has NEVER been a witch hunt to weed out and crucify homosexuals. That would have been impossible because no one ever discussed homosexuality, much less vocalized a public opinion about it. It was as though it didn’t exist. The only term I ever remember anyone using, to describe men who never married and shared an apartment, was bachelor and unfortunately, the women who never married were called a few more names, including old maid, spinster and maiden aunt. But, even those terms were understood to apply 100% to heterosexuals, heterosexuals who never found the right person to marry, and nothing more. If a homosexual was defined by any of those terms, it was purely unintentional and accidental.
It wasn’t until the gay radicals jumped-out-of-the-closet in the 1980s that the subject of homosexuality was ever discussed in public. Not the other way around! And I don’t understand why they so desperately want heterosexuals, and especially Christian heterosexuals, to eat crow for something they never did. There is no evidence of wrong-doing. The premise is based on irrational vindictiveness which should be squelched.
My wish is that homosexuals would grow-up, stop blaming others for their imaginary persecution and return to living their sexual lives in private, just as they once did, and just as we all do now. Everyone would be happier and I may even be compelled to someday try sky-diving and eat brains. The End.
The following article, by Matt Barber, highlights the groundless, religious intolerance that is so prevalent within the gay community. They are deliberately seeking to take revenge on Christians, who live by God’s laws, with the help of the politically correct, and cowardly, politicians. The LGBT extremists are leading the charge.
One of the most dangerous and discriminatory pieces of legislation in modern times – the ironically tagged “Employment Non-Discrimination Act,” or ENDA – passed the U.S. Senate on Thursday by a vote of 64-32. Ten Republicans disgracefully joined liberal Democrats in this effort to ultimately outlaw the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic.
Writing in the Huffington Post, popular homosexual radio personality Michelangelo Signorile confessed that, of any potential ENDA legislation that might reach President Obama’s desk for his pledged signature, “none should include any religious exemptions” whatsoever.
If Signorile and other “LGBT” activists get their way, this would mean that churches, mosques, synagogues, religious schools, Bible bookstores, as well as any and every other business in America with 15 or more employees, would be forced, under penalty of law, to abandon the biblical and traditional-values viewpoint on human sexuality, and hire (and otherwise not offend) those who openly flaunt expressly sinful and demonstrably self-destructive sexual behaviors.
Though in its current form ENDA contains an extremely weak religious exemption that might – and I mean might – partially protect some churches and religious organizations (until they’re sued by “gay” activists), this so-called exemption would leave most others – such as the aforementioned Bible bookstores and many Christian schools and para-church organizations – entirely unprotected. It would additionally crush individual business owners’ guaranteed First Amendment rights.
Although Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., attempted to amend the bill to strengthen religious protections, his amendment was shot down 55-43. Unbelievably, he voted for ENDA anyway.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., on the other hand, wasn’t even considerate enough to feign concern for the First Amendment. He promised homosexual pressure groups that Democrats would remove all protections for Christians and other people of faith on the flipside – after ENDA passed.
The homosexual news site Washington Blade reports that homosexual activist Derek Washington of “GetEqual” confirmed Reid’s promise. In a conference call with homosexual activists last week, Washington admitted that Reid vowed, as goes any religious exemption, “the main thing to do was get the vote taken care of, and then deal with it later. As often times happens, you don’t get something perfect the first time around, you go back and fix it later, so that was basically his take on it.”
According to the Blade, “That account was corroborated by Faiz Shakir, a Reid spokesperson, who said the Democratic leader understands the concerns, but wants to get the bill passed first, then go back and address the exemptions.”
They’ve stopped pretending, folks. This is about criminalizing Christianity.
Still, there is a little good news. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said that, for now at least, he opposes the law and will block it because it is both unnecessary and will result in “frivolous lawsuits.” He agrees with constitutional think tanks like the Heritage Foundation that have conclusively demonstrated the threat ENDA poses to First Amendment freedoms.
“The speaker believes this legislation will increase frivolous litigation and cost American jobs, especially small business jobs,” said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel.
ENDA represents government-sanctioned viewpoint discrimination, plain and simple. It is no different from forcing a deeply religious business owner to hire and accommodate an “out and proud” adulterous “swinger.” It directly alienates the unalienable rights of people of faith. It pits the government directly against the free exercise of religion and is, therefore, unconstitutional on its face.
During his second term, President George W. Bush issued a Statement of Administration Policy on ENDA, highlighting its unconstitutionality: “[ENDA] is inconsistent with the right to the free exercise of religion as codified by Congress in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).”
President Obama, however – who never met a Constitution he didn’t violate – has vociferously endorsed the bill and promises to sign it into law should it pass both houses of Congress. This is in perfect keeping with his demonstrated belief that the federal government’s constitutionally limited powers are more of a suggestion than a requirement.
Chai Feldblum is a lesbian activist and sexual nihilist lawyer who, in the past, has publicly supported legalized polygamy and bisexual polyamory. She is Obama’s recess-appointed commissioner to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). As ENDA’s chief framer, Ms. Feldblum would be charged with its primary enforcement. This is the classic fox-guarding-the-hen-house scenario.
In the past, Ms. Feldblum has repeatedly and candidly summed up the mindset behind the bill. She has publicly stated that the battle between religious freedom and unfettered sexual license (aka “gay rights”) is a “zero-sum game,” meaning the two cannot possibly coexist in harmony. It’s a “winner takes all” approach.
When asked about the Christian business owner or religious organization that morally objects to hiring people openly engaged in the homosexual lifestyle, Ms. Feldblum snapped: “Gays win, Christians lose.” And where Americans’ constitutionally guaranteed right to religious liberty comes into conflict with the postmodern concept of homosexual “rights,” Ms. Feldblum has admitted having “a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win.”
Of course, her analysis is entirely arbitrary and completely unsupported by any reasonable constitutional interpretation or federal precedent. But to Ms. Feldblum, Comrade Obama and his kooky cadre of revolutionary advisers, little things like the U.S. Constitution and federal precedent are but obnoxious speed bumps on the fast track to a brave new world.
Speaker Boehner, you alone stand between these torch-wielding nutters and a highly flammable U.S. Constitution.
Please stand your ground, sir. Under Obama, liberty has suffered quite enough, thank you.
(Note: Republicans voting for ENDA were Sens. Susan Collins, Maine, Mark Kirk, Ill., Lisa Murkowski, Alaska, Dean Heller, Nev., Kelly Ayotte, N.H., Rob Portman, Ohio, Jeff Flake, Ariz., John McCain, Ariz., Orrin Hatch, Utah, and Pat Toomey, Pa.)
